budget, is not actually the holiest thing you can pursue in government. >> paul ryan today put forward his budget. >> right. >> and says he is challenging you to come forward with a budget that reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue, if we controlled spending and have a smart entitlement package, then potentially what you have is balance, but it is not balance on the backs of, you know, the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, families who have disabled kids, that's not the right way to balance our budget. >> the glow is off paul ryan budgets, even for republicans, including former ryan worshipper rush limbaugh. >> now, there are people that don't like it, even on the republican side because it has tax increases in it, some say tax increases on the rich. leaves some of obama's tax increases in it. heritage foundation has done deep analysis of this. one of their prob

. how does it tack up to the budget proposed yet by paul ryan? here is a side-by-side comparison. the savings are more than double those in murray's plan. how has the numbers wizard able to find so much more extra fat to trim from the federal budget? he is cutting to the bone. more than $700 billion would be caved out of medicaid and nearly a try won would be chopped from programs including food stamps and pell grants. the defense would see zero in cuts in an enter view that aired this morning -- >> we're not going to balance the budget in ten years, because if you look at what paul ryan does to balance the budget, it means that you have to voucherize medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. >> but even those cuts alone don't make paul ryan's numbers add up. it only achieves balance through a full repeat of obama care, which it's worth noting is already law of the land upheld by supreme court and being enacted in 27 states. this gimmickry represents a stunning the extra $700 billion in savings from repealing a law. the editorial board of "the washington pos

a vote today. they are miles apart. paul ryan's plan, no new revenue. senator patty murray is proposing $1 trillion in new revenue. house republicans want to reduce the deficit. gop makes huge cuts to medicare and medicaid. the democratic plan relies on $275 billion in health care savings. president obama goes back to the hill. as "the washington post" puts it, the honeymoon is over. the president's approval rating is down to the 50% mark, although he's still doubling the approval rating of house democrats. i want to bring in politico senior reporter. good morning to both of you. manny, the headline on politico is budget plans or works of fiction. which is it? >> they are vision documents. i don't think anyone expects what both paul ryan and patty murray have proposed those proposals to become law. what it will do is create a process here in washington that may eventually lead to something down the road. whether that's a compromise or grand bargain, it's very far-fetched. both sides would have to go a lot closer to each other, something they have not been able to do. there are provision

said some really tough, harsh things about paul ryan's budget but you know what? things you say for your base and the things you do. and, right now, the president, he says what he needs to say for his base. the harsh things about the ryan budget. but he still talking to him while everybody on the base, mike, is, you know, sniping and not only at the president, but saying horrible things about paul ryan's budget and it's just -- you know, you really get a sense here, the last 48 hours has been a great, i think, window into the heart of american politics right now where you have the extremists who occupy the 5% on both sides and we see them on our twitter feeds and online and you see them on talk radio and cable news shows. then you've got the president and everybody else trying to move beyond those extremists and trying to get things done for the country. >> the interesting thing, at least to me, about the president of the united states and, kelly, perhaps you could share some insight into this more than i have certainly, is that he is now in a position where he can't win. if he
. meanwhile, chairman paul ryan unveiled his budget plan and listen to how ryan describes republican priorities. >> the most important question isn't how we balance the budget, but why. a budget is a means to an end. an end is the well being of the american people. >> the most important question is how we balance the budget and making sure it's not on the backs of working americans. congressman ryan also made an unfortunate slip. >> this to us is something we're not going to give up on because we're not going to give up on destroying the health care system for american people. >> an instant classic. you believe him? chairman ryan's plan to repeal obama care has already been pan ed by one fox news host. another took aim at ryan's budget today. >> paul ryan saying his idea in his budget is to eliminate obama care, that's not practical. even though you might want it, the supreme court has spoken. that's never going to fly. >> i raised the same point yesterday. you're exactly right. how would he factor this in? >> maybe paul ryan doesn't understand the process. who knows. meanwhile, the
, it's that he won't cave on his principles. >> paul ryan today put forward his budget and he says he's challenging you to come forward with a budget that also reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. it's not balance on the backs of the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, families who have got disabled kids. >> that's the gop's real problem. don't let them fool you. ginning me now is e.j. dionne. e.j., let me ask you, is the real problem here what i'm saying? what is the real problem, in your opinion? does the gop expect the president to cave in on his principles? >> the real problem is a huge philosophical gulf about the way forward. i was really glad that the president very explicitly said, there's nothing magical about balancing the budget in ten years. if we balance the budget too quickly and especially if we make a lot of cuts early, we're going to potentially wreck this economy. that's number one. number two, if you look at paul ryan's budget, there are incredible cuts in there to t

. on the other side of capitol hill on tuesday, house budget chairman paul ryan released a budget that he believes can get 218 republican votes, and that's it. >> the election didn't go our way. believe me, i know what that feels like. that means we surrender our principles? that means we stop believing in what we believe in? we need to put out our vision. we think we owe the country a balanced budget. >> remember, ryan's budget cuts $4.6 trillion in spending, including $2.7 trillion in health care cuts, produces no new tax revenue. but ryan also has acknowledged, this is not where the two parties are likely to end up. >> just ask a person who's watching this show, who's in business, do you start with your last offer first in a negotiation? no, of course not. we each pass our budgets, which is very important, because it creates a vehicle that we can go to conference with. so we actually have the budget process being a revived. then we start talking. then we start looking for common ground. i don't think patty's budget gives a lot of troroom for look for that common ground, but this is whe

in washington is the paul ryan budget. it's the same budget paul ryan and romney ran on in the election when they lost with the weaknesses that caused them to lose like taking a hatchet to health care and the generous tax cut to the rich that somehow pays for its. what you want details? you know better than that. this is groundhog day in republican politics. soon, they are going to float hillary clinton is going to replace joe biden as vice president again. all of this stuff, the welfare lie, the obama phone lie. the kill medicare budget that we don't have to explain, trust us. it's republicans trying to get traction on stuff they did not get traction on before when they were busy trying not to lose in the november elections and they lost anyway. in that election, it was actually the democrats who really did get traction on part of that issue. it was democrats who did get traction when this tape showed the republicans real argument on this stuff and all the naked behind closed doors glory. the republican's presidential campaign showing 47% of the country was accustomed to voting. romney sayi
applaud the clear and convincing voice of my friend paul ryan. >> we haven't lost our way. i applaud paul ryan. so much for change you can believe in. republicans refuse to accept that their policies were rejected in november. and none more so than wrong way ryan. >> you know, it's really pretty simple. we stop spending money we don't have. our debt is a threat to this country. we have to tackle this problem before it tackles us. >> no. on november 6th, americans said no to that. no to cuts, cuts, cuts mentality. we refused it. we shot it down, we nixed it, declined it, renounced it, dismissed it. i don't know how many more ways republicans need me to say it, yet despite that, the gop keeps offering up the same slash and burn policies that gut the middle class. take ryan's budget, it's so severe worth to the lowest level since 1948. 1948. that's literally rolling back the clock. this is the same party that rails about white house tours. but it gnaws automatic budget cuts. well, they should ignore the fact that the u.s. forest service will have to cut 505 firefighters. they should ignore t
. in an interview with abc news, the president slammed paul ryan's insistence on deep, drastic spending cuts saying we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. in fact for the next ten years, it's going to be in a sustainable place. the question is, can we do it smarter, can we do it better? if the only goal of a budget was to make it as small as possible, congressman paul ryan would be your man. his budget reduces the deficit by an additional $2.75 trillion compared to senator patty murray's plan. but the race to a budget is not the goal of a budget. foumtly a budget is a reflection of your core values, and which investments you believe are necessary. to those who say government should treat its budgets the way households do, it's important to point out that a family's budget works the same way. parents don't pull their kids out of school or deliberately starve themselves or stop going to the doctor for the singular doing mattic purpose of spending as little as possible. and taking out kretic is both part of american culture and key to growing the economy. for instance, 71% of americans ta

. but to president obama, balancing the budget alone not his top priority. >> paul ryan is challenging you to come forward with a budget that also reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no, my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue, if we've controlled spending and we've got a smart entitlement package, then potentially what you have is balance but it's not balance on the backs of, you know, the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, family who have got disabled kids. that's not the right way to balance our budget. >> a major part of congressman ryan's plan relies on repealing the president's landmark health care law, a tactic house republicans have tried dozens of times before without gaining any traction. >> in terms of your budget, if you don't get it this year and the likelihood of getting it repealed this year is very, very low, does it blow a hole in your ten-year budget. >> sure because it calls for continuing the spe
guess that theory of evolution was echoed by paul ryan today. i want to play sound regarding once again the fiscal ideas that he touted in 2012, rearing their heads in 2013. let's take a listen. >> a balanced budget is a reasonable goal because it returns government to its proper limits and focus. when government overreaches, it doesn't just hurt our paychecks, it hurts our quality of life. we need to make room for community, for that vast middle ground between the government and the individual. >> you know, governor, the part of me that sticks out there is use of the word "community." i think that's been a priority that's lost specifically in the ryan budget insofar as it sort of tears asunder the social fabric. what do you think about him couching this in softer terms. >> i hate to say it, he has become an empty suit. this budget is a joke. for example, he says he would get rid of obama care, he would get rid of the benefits but kept the tax benefits to balance the budget, which isn't balanced. gives tax cuts to people that make a million dollars a year, cuts medicaid benefits, privat
